Volunteer Services 

JFK Memorial Hospital is dedicated to providing high-quality healthcare. Our dedicated volunteers are an integral part of our team at JFK Memorial Hospital.    As a volunteer you can provide the extra touches and services that help our patients, their families and our hospital staff. These services are provided in a variety of areas and volunteers are encouraged to choose from the following areas of interest:

• Information Desk
• Gift Shop                                                                                 
• Surgery Waiting Area
• Pre Op Surgery Area
• Emergency Department
• Messenger
• Special Projects

The JFK Volunteer program is governed by the Hospital Auxiliary. The Auxiliary also manages fund raising activities through the Auxiliary Gift Shop, candy, bake, and book sales. The money they raise goes to a scholarship fund for all the Coachella Valley High Schools, and offer a continued support to the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission.

Our team is comprised of both adult and junior volunteers with titles ranging from CEO (retired) to All Star High School Football Champion.
